As a Registered Liberal, you’re invited to attend the General Meeting of the Gaspésie-Les Îles-de-la-Madeleine Federal Liberal Association.

As you may know, these general meetings for your local Liberal Electoral District Association (EDA) give us all an exciting chance to build up our local team for the year ahead.  Table Officers and Directors will be chosen by you, and fellow Liberals in your area.

This is an exciting time to be involved in the Liberal Party of Canada, as we work together to support positive politics and Justin Trudeau’s plan for a stronger middle class.

Together, we’re continuing to build the most open and inclusive movement in Canadian politics – and connecting with our neighbours and communities is essential on the road to the next election campaign in 2019.  With leadership that brings Canadians together, the Liberal government has cut taxes for 9 million middle class Canadians, offered real help for Canadian families with the new Canada Child Benefit, and taken important steps to fight climate change, grow our economy, and renew Canada’s engagement in the world. And there’s so much more to do.

2 locations:

Gaspésie – The meeting will be held at the Gaspé Campus, 96 Jacques-Cartier St, Gaspé, QC G4X 2S8, (Room 140) on April 7th at 1:00PM (Eastern time).

Magdalen Islands – The meeting will be held at the Magdalen Islands Center for College Studies, 15 Chemin de la Piscine, L’Étang-du-Nord, (Room 12) on April 7th at 2:00PM (Atlantic time).

The EDA Board of Directors is often the first point of contact that Canadians will have with the Liberal Party of Canada. Serving on your EDA Board is a great way to develop your skills, to cultivate relationships, and to engage with community leaders – regardless of how much or how little experience you may have with political engagement.

Members of the board will be responsible for engaging Canadians at the grassroots level, hosting events, fundraising, and most importantly, building towards the next federal election.
